LEBANON -- Cumberland University and the Nashville Metropolitan Transit Authority and Regional Transportation Authority have signed a one-year agreement that includes radio advertising for football, basketball and baseball as well as a new component for all CU home athletic events for the 2010-11 academic year - the Music City Star of the Game.
One Cumberland athlete will be highlighted over the public address system at the conclusion of all home events as the Music City Star of the Game. The athlete will also be featured and named in the postgame story on the CU athletic website.
The NMTA and RTA will also sponsor the Cumberland football coaches show, now called the Music City Star Coaches Show, which features CU football coach Dewayne Alexander and two Wilson County high school football coaches every Wednesday from 6:30-7:30 p.m. on WANT 98.9 FM.
Through a separate agreement the NMTA and RTA will honor the Music City High School Player of the Week this season, designating one Wilson County football player’s highlights from the previous game, and that player will also be featured during the Music City Star Coaches Show.
The show begins September 1 and runs through November 10 and will be hosted by Tommy Bryan, longtime sports editor of The Wilson Post.
